Kelly Hall, Matt Stafford’s fiancée, will do whatever it takes to defend her man. So when a Detroit Sun Times writer called out the Lions quarterback in a recent article, she made sure to respond.
Hall and Stafford flew to Syracuse to watch Michigan State take on Oklahoma in the NCAA Tournament on Friday. Stafford attended the University of Georgia, but since they were defeated by Michigan State, he went to cheer on the Spartans.
Yet for some reason, he was ripped by a Detroit Sun Times writer—Kyle Thele—for not cheering hard enough. (Ed Note: The Detroit Sun Times appears to be part of a larger digital network.) The article specifically mentioned Stafford’s lack of clapping and compared him to Aaron Rodgers—who enthusiastically supported Wisconsin in the tournament with girlfriend Olivia Munn—and played off the “Rodgers is more passionate than Stafford” narrative, which is a bit ridiculous.
Hall was not happy about it, and she took to Instagram to weigh in about the article.
Hall and Stafford also attended the Michigan State-Louisville game on Sunday. The two looked to be having a good time, so hopefully their excitement level was enough to satisfy Thele.
Hall was well within her right to respond. Ripping a team’s quarterback for not clapping during a college basketball game is a bit absurd.
